    At the beginning of August 2011, Toshiba decided to drop out of the Fujitsu-Toshiba joint venture. Fujitsu made its plans public to buy Toshiba's stake and become a wholly owned subsidiary. As of April 1, Fujitsu managed to finalize the acquisition of Toshiba's 19.9% ownership stake from Fujitsu Toshiba Mobile Communications Limited. Adding it to Fujitsu's 80.1% stake, the company now became a wholly owned subsidiary with its name being changed to Fujitsu Mobile Communications Limited. Fujitsu-Toshiba was present on the list of Windows Phone official hardware manufacturer partners and, as ...

    Japanese phone-maker Fujitsu wants to enter the North American market and bring its smartphones to the U.S. after a steady presence in its home market, aided by a close partnership with DoCoMo network operator. Senior Executive Vice President Hideyuki Saso said that "North America is our priority market". The company will become whole again this year after Fujitsu acquired Toshiba's 19.9% stake in the joint-venture, adding it to its own slice of 80.1%. "We would like to identify the right way of entering the North American market that would make use of our technology and expertise to make ...

    A leaflet circulating in Vegas hinted towards the existence of the world's first quad-core, nVidia Tegra 3-powered smartphone, wearing the Toshiba branding. Turns out the info was right as the company had the phone prototype on display. On display is the proper expression because, as you can see in the image above, the device was showcase behind glass, in a transparent box, safe from the prying hands of everyone. The specs accompanying the device are talking about nVidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, a 4.6-inch "HD-quality" LCD screen, 13-megapixel camera, and LTE ...

    Aside from a couple of tablets, like the Acer Iconia Tab A700 and the Asus Transformer Prime TF700T, there was no quad-core Tegra 3 Android-live at CES. Fujitsu is (hopefully) about to change that, as you can see in the leaflet pictured above. A "new quad-core ultra high-spec smartphone" is expected to make its appearance over at Fujitsu, with nVidia's Tegra 3 quad-core SoC, 12 GPU graphics acceleration and Ice Cream Sandwich on-board. Whether there will be an official announcement is yet unknown but the wording above needs our crossed fingers; after all, we're talking (at the moment) ...

    Just before Thanksgiving, we looked at a Fujistu Android that had stopped-by the FCC and were very impressed with just how thin the phone was. The Arrows F-07D bottomed-out at 6.7 millimeters thick, and only hit 8.5 millimeters at its thickest. Today we learn of another slim Fujtisu, which appears to be the F-07D hardware but for carrier KDDI instead of NTT DoCoMo, the Fujtsu Arrows ES IS12F. Published hardware specs on the Arrows ES IS12F match what we knew of the F-07D, and help flesh-out those areas where we lacked a complete picture of the phone. The IS12F has a 1.4GHz single-core ...

    This year we saw the arrival of some of the thinnest smartphones ever. At some point, we'll reach some very-difficult-to-overcome physical limitations, but for the time being, manufacturers continue to carve our phones down thinner and thinner. We're not quite there yet, but one upcoming model is seriously flirting with breaking the quarter-inch barrier. Fujitsu's Arrows F-07D has a 1.4GHz Snapdragon, a four-inch FWVGA screen with Gorilla Glass, and a five megapixel camera, but perhaps most importantly, it measures-in at a scant 6.7 millimeters thick. Like many recent phones reaching for ...

    The Fujitsu-Toshiba IS12T is the first smartphone running Windows Phone Mango that was launched. It is a joint effort made by Microsoft, OEM Fujitsu-Toshiba and Japanese carrier KDDI and it looks good so far. Being the first Windows Phone to run Mango, its commercial is also the first Windows Phone Mango ad to surface on the internet. The clip itself is not made by Microsoft nor the manufacturer but belongs to the carrier KDDI. Needless to say that is shows off all the goodness Mango and Windows Phone in general brings, but it will be interesting to see how the market will react to the new ...

    Toshiba has plans of its own as the company decided to leave the joint venture with Fujitsu but the phone above seems to be that one last kick the two companies unleash upon the (Japanese) market. The Fujitsu-Toshiba Arrows Z ISW11F is an Android phone that is also waterproof, headed to Japan's KDDI. Available in white, black and pink, the phone runs Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and packs a 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP4430 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM, microSD card support for additional 32GB, 4.3-inch HD display with 720 x 1280 resolution, 13-megapixel camera with Sony's Exmor R for mobile ...

    Microsoft, Fujitsu and KDDI have today officially launched the Fujitsu-Toshiba IS12T as the world's first phone running Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 with the Mango refresh. The phone was announced on July 27 and today, almost a month later, the IS12T has been officially launched. The event took place in front of Akihabara's Yodobashi Camera store but despite it being an official event, and a very important one at that, Akihabara News reports that there was little interest. Out of the total number of people attending, 80% were journalists and the rest probably Microsoft, KDDI, Fujitsu and ...

    Microsoft, Japanese operator KDDI and Fujitsu-Toshiba have announced the first Japanese Windows Phone (and the world's first Mango-phone), the IS12T at the end of July and it looks like the phone will be launched on August 25. Approximately one month after its announcement, the first Windows Phone running Mango will be available in Japan, according to the carrier. August 25 will be the first launch day and it will go all the way to August 27, depending on the country region. As a reminder, the IS12T features a Qualcomm MSM8655 CPU, 32GB of internal memory, 3.7-inch WVGA screen, ...

    The next generation of the Windows Phone operating system has been released to manufacturing and that means manufacturers are now hard at work at fitting the new OS on new hardware devices that we can expect to see released later this year. We've already seen a few tastes from Samsung, Acer, ZTE, and Toshiba-Fujitsu at WPC as well as a few other leaks. I'm guessing most of the new devices will have faster single-core processors as well as some dedicated graphics processing units. HTC's devices are expected to have 1.5Ghz Qualcomm MSM 8655 CPUs and screen sizes ranging from 3.8 to 4.7 ...

    Ok so, if the rumors of Japanese carrier AU's plans to launch the Fujitsu-Toshiba IS12T on August 25th are true, then not only is a new smartphone getting launched. If you remember, this IS12T is planed to be the first Windows Phone to be launched with Mango this year, so call this an official way to leak one of the most anticipated dates of the year. AU has begun taking reservations for the device, and the planned delivery date for those buying it in advanced is August 25th, so everything does seem to point out to that specific date correctly. Surely a lot can happen between now and that ...
